Remembering Saroj Khan
Bollywood choreographer Saroj Khan died after a cardiac arrest on Friday in Mumbai. She was 71. One of the most prolific choreographers of the Hindi film industry, Saroj Khan, fondly called 'Masterji' in Bollywood, had called the shots in over 2,000 songs spanning over four decades.
Although Saroj Khan started out in the early seventies, she really became a household name in the mid to late eighties, first directing some memorable dances for Sridevi and then Madhuri Dixit, the reigning superstars of the era.
She gave Madhuri Dixit some of her most iconic hits including 'Ek Do Teen and 'Dhak Dhak and 'Dola Re Dola' among numerous others. Her last major assignment was Madhuri's 2019 film 'Kalank'.
"I'm devastated by the loss of my friend and guru," Madhuri wrote in her condolence message for Saroj Khan.

A LEGEND has left us Can’t forget the moment I first met you when you came to choreograph ‘Kitaabe’ ( Baazigar) and I burst out crying (I was a huge fan of your work) I couldn’t believe you were actually standing in front of me. Then came ‘Churake dil’, which was a milestone in my career... and many more. You set the benchmark so high, taught me ‘how’ to express... a technician par excellence... No one shot women like you, you were the best! Will miss you. Churake dil mera #Saroj ji chali May you rest in peace, Masterji Strength and love to the family to cope with this irreparable loss #rip #guru #legend #sarojkhan #memories
